New York, New York (Vocus/PRWEB) January 03, 2011
Sudan watchers and Sudanese clergy living in the United States are bracing themselves as the historic referendum that may bring independence to South Sudan nears. The historic January 9 vote marks a crucial moment in history as the world waits to see whether a new nation will be born or a new war will explode with an invasion by the powerful North. Odyssey Networks, America's largest interfaith media coalition, has produced an exclusive, multi-week series on the events surrounding the current situation in Africa's largest nation: “Eye on Sudan.”
Central to the web event is “Voices of Sudan,” a series of interviews with Sudanese clergy in the United States who share their unique perspectives on the referendum and its potential aftermath. A number of these are “Lost Boys,” who escaped the horrors of Sudan's previous civil wars. In addition to these conversations, “Eye on Sudan” will offer regular updates and perspectives on the referendum. Highlights include The Episcopal Church’s “A Season of Prayer for Sudan” and coverage of the interfaith vigil scheduled to be held at the Church Center for the United Nations. Viewers will also find an exclusive interview series on Sudan with Eliza Griswold, author of the “Tenth Parallel”—an examination of the tensions between Christianity and Islam in Africa and South Asia.
